March 1968 events

The March 1968 events in Poland were dispersed and initiated by various groups. First and foremost, one must remember in this context a true and spontaneous revolt by students and intellectuals from Polish cities against the communist authorities. University students who decided to take a stand defending freedom of speech and civil liberties were brutally pacified by the militia and ZOMO motorised riot troops.
